Introduction

Becoming parents is a wonderful experience in itself. If you are a new parent then I am sure you might be facing some issues.

In this article, we are going to learn about six major parenting issues and how to solve them. I am not saying these will be the final things which you have to do but definitely, these will give you some directions. So, let’s begin.

Let's learn about parenting

Let's learn about parenting

Aggressive Behaviour

I clearly remember during my school days there were friends who were aggressive in nature and behavior. They used to believe that they are always right. They were always ready to fight anyone.

But later, I realized they were like that because of their environment. It is very important to note what kind of friends your children have. If they are mingling with such kinds of children more often then they will become like them.

What about your home environment? Are they watching more aggressive movies and playing such video games? Remember people adopt such behavior because of their environment. So, try to give as best as surroundings as possible.

Poor Eating

Another issue many parents will is related to poor eating. It is quite natural and common among many children. Even I remember when I was young I also had this same issue.

But as I grew up, slowly and slowly I started including every kind of vegetables in my diet. It is important to give a well-balanced diet to children rather than trying to force-feed them.

Try to serve a variety of dishes rather than serving only one type of vegetables. Don’t try to build a wrong habit and image among them like eating ice-cream, eating street foods, and processed foods items. Don’t serve too many foods like maggie, burgers, processed non-vegetable items, chips, cold drinks, etc. Always teach them to eat fresh vegetables, fruits, nuts, and juice.

Physical activity

Physical Activity

I know many friends, they always remain busy playing video games. When we were small we use to go out and play different varieties of games.

I am not saying nowadays children are not playing outside but there are millions and millions of kids who are just staring at mobiles most of the time.

And due to a lack of proper physical activity, they are not taking proper food. Therefore, it is the responsibility of each parent to take them out in the public garden and spend some quality time playing with me at least once or twice a week. This will be not only good for them but for you also.

Lack Of Social Skills

There are many kids who are actually shy and some are good with facing others. Many children actually lack social skills but it is quite natural.

Well, I would rather say they watch others and observe them and learn from them. If they will see you giving respect to elders then they will learn sooner or later.

Remember kids are pure from heart and mind and it all depends upon the kind of environment they get. Our parents taught us to give respect to elders, so today also we say “namestee” to elders and hi to friends.

Anxiety And Stress

How you are going to react if your kids will get low marks? Are you going to scold them or teach them better for the next exam?

To be honest small kids get scared easily and they can lose their self-confidence. Therefore, it is the duty of parents to motivate them always. One or two bad exams or failure to secure good grades cannot decide your children’s life and future.

In today’s time, there are so many new career options are available in which you kids can excel. Don’t give them unnecessary stress and anxiety. Allow them to fail a few times because these can become stepping stones for their life and by help from parents. Let them learn from the life of successful people because even they failed many times. So, remember failure is an option and not the end result.

Homework Problem

Now, this is related to studies. I personally believe till the time kids reach the 5th standard they should be allowed to play more rather than focusing on studies.

Once they reach the 6th standard then they should start study seriously. We need to understand that each student is not the same. Therefore, some students can get good marks while others may get low marks. Remember fish cannot climb the tree even if you will show them 1000 times.

If you want your children should do their homework properly then ask them to study on the daily basis at least for 2 hours. Allow them to write and read more. When they will write more then they can remember easily. And show them the practical use of important concepts. You can take the help of a tuition teacher.

Conclusion

I think small kids are one of the most beautiful gifts of life. We as mature people should nurture them with lots of care and love. We should teach them life’s important lessons as soon as possible in the best way possible. Let them learn and grow well and let them become successful in whatever field they choose to grow.
